Overlain Terrain Instrument track contexts fr/1975-86 reel-to-reel analog tapes when the Duluth Minnesota USA windribbon was downed following severe gustiness (not recorded): The major anchoring Birch was toppled by north-westerly winds. An opposite anchoring Birch tree snapped first just below its tie-off position lower on the trunk. Soundwork details: a. seasonal differences/sameness (wind, torsional tree movements, squirrels in trees and branches occasionally wildly churning the 1/2 inch bras...

Steady, cool, N. Easterly windyness jostled smooth tertiary branches and twigs, crackling the dried and deep yellow leaves of a maturing twenty five foot Aspen tree. There's a faint undulating windsound present in the background. This seems a substitute sound for tape hiss- tho it sounds velvety; however, this MylarÂ®-backed recording was a "LowNoise" media-and to my ears did not appear as grainy...

>vibrationally energetic and vigorous sampling of windribboning occurs from stiff winds; Shadow sensors (held on metal strand w/beeswax) broke loose from the windribbon interrupting continuity; breaks and other problems to to high winds compelled my periodic intercessions which alternated w/Birch branches and other inserts (starting/stoping recording with abrupt segues, etc) sum: challengingly chaotic

At this 80s Forest Terrain Instrument listening site, all 5 inch speakers and aluminum tubing were recycled for a totally different analog-collecting challenge: integrate terrestrial contexts. Four mics (2-AKG C414 B-ULS; 2-SHURE 635s) were used. The TEAC A3440 four track reel-to-reel playback w/amped-output allowed up to 5 "record/playback planes". Using headphones, re-recordings based on previous tracks encouraged self-accompaniment and second-thought reflections RE nature...
